1st Tube, Bug, Get Back on the Train, Sand, Heavy Things, Piper*, In-law Josie Wales,

The whole thing was pretty right on.

5/16/00 The Late Show with David Letterman, Ed Sullivan Theaters, New York, NY
05/15/00 Y100 Sonic Session, Philadelphia, PA
First Tube, Farmhouse, Twist Around*, Heavy Things,
Get Back On The Train, Piper, Inlaw Josie Wales**,
Bug, Gotta Jibboo
* The crowd did the "Wooo!" and this cracked Trey up
** Trey goofed up twice and said "that's why we're in
a recording studio, we can do this all over again"
Notes: Approximately 50 people were in attendance.
Took a while for them to figure out each song they
were going to play. People would yell things like
"Harpua" etc during the time they were trying to
figure out what to play and Trey said something
like "Don't you notice the theme going on here?" ;-)
Someone also of course yelled "CHEESECAKE!" and
Fishman said, "I think we need a new word...that
one's getting old." Trey said our new word is
"Fishman" Page came on and said, "How about the
new word is CHEESESTEAK!" Fishman replied "Oh,
thats very geographical of you!"
Also, while they were flipping the tape, Trey
asked the audience if someone wanted to tell
a joke. They went to Fishman for a joke but
Fishman didn't have anything, so an audience
member started to tell a joke, but it was
taking him a really long time, he couldn't
get it right, he screwed up, so Trey said
"this better be a good one" because the kid
was rambling, but he finally got it out and
Trey made a "bad joke riff" WA WAA WAAA WAAAAAA
(the best i could do typing a sound effect).
According to phish.com, The Session is tentatively
scheduled to air on Y100 and online on Memorial
Day Weekend. Also, a DJ at Y100 said on the air
it will be airing on a "Sunday to be announced."
So I would say it seems pretty likely that Sunday
on Memorial Day weekend is the day (5/28), however,
I can't stress enough we don't know for sure yet!
Thanks to Tina (via Dave) and Phans.Com
for the setlist!
